It's good to meet a REAL muffin again rather than an inflated Individual Chocolate Sponge Treat. I couldn't face it right now, mind you, having just eaten two hot buttered crumpets with a large mug of tea, but I shall bear the idea in mind Smile
Happy Silly Sunday to you too!!!!!
Bill

I have been to Drury Lane many times in the last few years. Unfortunately the muffin man has moved Sad

Thanks Bill and Ronnie. Oh yes, Bill, a proper ENGLISH muffin Smile. Mind you, I am rather partial to the American version if it contains blueberries and I have even made them on occasion, traitor that I am WinkWink.

Thanks Moira and Jenn.
Jenn - as someone who lives on the other side of the pond, do you have this kind of muffin over there as well as the chocolate or blueberry sponge cake variety? And do you have crumpets?

Ah-- pardon this one Thresa---the muffin looks like what we call an 'English muffin'--- They come in all sorts of flavors including chocolate, pumpkin, cranberry, blueberry, cinnamon etc., and so on--even blended flavors.

As far a sponge cake muffins?? not sure what that is, but there are muffins made in cup cake pans that rise like cup cakes---and yes, crumpets and also biscotti and brioche and bagals-- and a whole list of others---

am curious----do you just call you imaged 'a muffin"

We toast the "English muffin' --do you?

Jennn, we just call them muffins - I guess over there you add the 'English' to differentiate between them and the cupcake variety (and yes, that is what I meant by 'sponge cake' Wink). But goodness, we don't get the English muffins in all those varieties! Generally just plain ones, or sultana, or maybe fruit and cinnamon but that's about it! And yes, we do toast them, just like crumpets.

All those flavours are usually reserved for the other muffins. We have a coffee bar in Plymouth called the Canadian Muffin Company and they sell a seemingly endless variety of them, including savoury ones - delicious! (I'm talking about the cupcake ones now, goodness this is confusing!!!).

Our differences are interesting, aren't they? SmileSmile

Ohhhhh - CINNAMON - I could kill for cinnamon.
I took enforced school dinners when I was about twelve years old; the only memory I have* is of being transported to another plane by the taste of cinnamon apple pudding (the apples were ages old and the pudding like cardboard, but the cinnamon...........)

Bill

P.S.: I'm sure I voted for the original muffin earlier. Have I cracked the dilemma of how to vote twice on a single upload?

*Not entirely true: My favourite English teacher's version of the traditional grace before the meal was "Thank God we've got something to eat!"

Without any flavours at all.....

Quote:Ohhhhh - CINNAMON - I could kill for cinnamon.

I found a lovely ginger cake recipe last week, but was out of ginger so I went to the shop...... The next day I was in the shop again and remembered I was out of cinnamon. On returning home I went to put it in the spice rack, only to find there was already some there.... but no ginger. Very puzzling, until I tasted the cake.... not only had I bought cinnamon by mistake the previous day, but I hadn't even noticed when I made the cake (it was a very tasty cinnamon cake, though GrinGrinGrin)
